You have a friend who is fiddling with the idea of losing their gold star, and they mention they may be bicurious?! Whoa! That’s quite a bit to take in, and it will leave you scratching your head wondering, what the hell could that possibly mean? So, stay seated and keep reading because you’re going to be an expert on love by the end of our article. 

Firstly, we need to answer one question – what does it mean to be bicurious? Well, a bicurious person identifies as gay or straight but is curious about exploring with someone outside of their usual preference. Can you believe we had to modify this definition? 

The “straight” definition is not gay kosher as it’s defined exclusively as a heterosexual wanting to experience sexual relations with someone of the same sex. Can anyone else say oppressive? 

What Is the Difference Between Bicurious and Bisexual?

Bisexuals are attracted to both men and women. People who identify as bisexual know they’re attracted to both sexes. Some people who identify as bisexual later identify as gay or straight, but others never do. However, how you identify can also depend on your attraction. Some people only consider something “gay” if there is sex involved. That is exclusively a sexual attraction. So, as the name indicates – someone bicurious is toying with the idea of losing their gold star and touching a frontal peach. The moist disgrace!

Your bi-curiosity depends on your attraction.

Did you know there are many different kinds of attractions? Yeah, you read that right! Here are the different types of sexual attraction – we gotta know them before we can truly know if gay men can be bicurious. So, here they are. Let us know which you think is the most interesting and which you think most applies to you.  

Sexual attraction is the first type of attraction. You may feel attracted to someone romantically, physically, emotionally, or aesthetically too. These attractions are completely different, and you may feel each for different people.

This type of attraction is the one most associated with our community – but since we are so freaking hot it’s easy to see why. After all, straight women often become wetter than Niagara Falls when a couple of hotties are around. So, it makes sense that we would also do it for the hot men in our community. The next attraction is romantic attraction, which is completely different from sexual attraction. You may feel romantic attraction towards someone without sexual attraction towards them. This is when you want to be in an intimate relationship with the person, but you don’t necessarily want them to put some pain in your peach. So, in this type of attraction, sex isn’t always necessary.

Physical attraction is a desire to be close to other people. This can happen in romantic relationships or friendships. People attracted to each other often want to be together, but it doesn’t necessarily mean we want to have sex with them. It’s a class case of mean girls where you can only sit with us if you wear pink! If you gain 5lbs, you can sit with the losers. In other words, if you’re not fit, we will name you Felicia and say, “Bye!”

Physical attraction is something that develops as we get older. We begin to form friendships with people who share similar interests. When we’re young, we may be attracted to someone because of the way they make us feel. This type of attraction is called emotional or romantic attraction. As we age, we become more comfortable around others. We learn to accept other people’s differences. We also become less interested in sex.

Emotional attractions are feelings of wanting to be physically close to someone else. This is usually felt when you have something important to say to someone else. You might also feel attracted to someone because you think they’re cute or funny.

Having healthy emotional attachments and feeling that you can share your feelings is extremely important. You should have several friends with whom you feel can share emotions and feelings. This kind of attraction is called aesthetic attraction. Physical attraction is a big one. The sexual attraction is another. Aesthetic attraction is also very important. People change over time. We learn about ourselves and what we want. Therefore, relationships are hard. You can’t always know what you want until you try it out.

Intellectual attraction is a type that you feel towards people who challenge your thoughts and ideas. You may enjoy spending time with these people because they make you think differently than you normally do. People who are attracted to intellects may also be attracted to emotions. Some people find that they need physical attraction before they can feel emotionally attracted or even physically attracted to another person. Having an emotional attraction or physical attachment is essential to our growth. We need to feel comfortable around others, and we need to express ourselves. This is how we learn about ourselves and develop into better people.

Do you agree, or is being gay and bicurious a fad?

Now that we are clear on the different types of attraction and what it means to be bisexual – we can say yes, gay men can be bi-curious. After learning about all the different kinds of attractions, what do you think? Do you agree with us, or do you still feel that being bicurious is a form of greed? Unbelievably, people feel that being bisexual is greed. It is a silly sentiment on their behalf. 

Let us know what you think in the comments – we’d love to hear if you agree or not because opinions make the world go around!
